Overview: This class introduces research methods used in computer science at the graduate level. It is a hands-on class: students develop a research proposal in an area of their choice. As such it will be valuable for those in the early stages of research, for example Masters students identifying a research topic and planning their work. It will also be useful for anyone wanting to learn how scientific research is done in practice, especially those considering doctoral studies or a research career in the field of computer science. By the end of the semester each participant will have written an extended research proposal of 15-20 double-spaced pages, complete with motivation, review of relevant literature, research question, and method.
